Firefox crashes 3-5 times a day
My firefox is crashing constantly. I have tried SAFE MODE, the disabling Flash, etc. What everyone suggests and nothing seems to work. It's so frustrating as I need 2 different browsers to get through my work day on different sites, etc.
Can you be of assistance?

I've tried everything you guys have listed and nothing worked. This is on my work computer so my IT team had been looking into this as well and were unable to find a solution. Your browser just kept crashing so I had to completely reformat my hard drive to get fresh instances of everything.
Now that everything is refreshed I'll just use Chrome and go back to IE more since Firefox is so unstable.
Thank you. I've done most of what you listed above already. I turned off a few more plugins or "ask to activate" so we'll see what that does. I got this, this morning. "Plugin Container for Firefox has stopped working"
Since I seen this I would like to try something for me if you dont mind since i seen plugin-container.
If you know how to make a bat file do this:
@echo off ":start" del C:\Windows\Prefetch\PLUGIN-CONTAINER*.pf >nul 2>&1 del C:\Windows\Prefetch\flashpl*.pf >nul 2>&1 del C:\Windows\Prefetch\firefox*.pf >nul 2>&1 del C:\Windows\Prefetch\PLUGIN-HANG*.pf >nul 2>&1 del C:\Windows\Prefetch\AGCP*.pf >nul 2>&1 timeout 30 goto :start
make sure you run as administrator it will run in a look and delete certain prefetch files. It works for some its unorthodox but ever since i stumbled upon this and i have been crash free for a few years now after implementing this as a systry utility
Deleting the prefetch is harmless, close FF and run it, then launch FF I am curious to see it it helps at all
REMOVE the quotes in the first START and leave the ":" these fourms strip certain characters
